About Techstars Startup Weekend: Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks yby industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

What’s different about this event?

Our Theme: Women | Diversity + Inclusion!

We believe entrepreneurship is the single greatest force in making the world a better place. We are encouraging entrepreneurs from Berlin to come out, participate, and create ideas and opportunities that drive real-world social change. We believe in an inclusive definition of “women”; we encourage trans, genderqueer women and non-binary people who are femme-identifying but anyone is welcome to attend!

We're hosting this event because women are seen as a minority, especially in the tech-industry; being a male-dominated field. Women hold just 5.2% of CEO positions at S&P 500 Companies. So it's about time we change that!

Are men allowed to attend? YES, MEN ARE INVITED! However, there are a limited number of tickets available to men, and we do encourage men to find another female participant to bring along.


Perks

Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:

- 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
- Benefits and discounts from our global partners
- One-on-one time with amazing mentors
- A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
- All the internet and coffee you can consume.


What do you need to bring?
Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.


Refund Policy: No refunds will be granted within 7 days of the event if food and drink have already been ordered. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
